i wonder if they put the steel seatpost/headtube extensions to save money ? sure looks funky (not a bad thing for my taste.)

Not to save money, but for strength on the bigger frames. The big boys with frame sizes over 60 tended to complain about their frame not being stiff enough when putting a lot of power on it (like sprinting). The extensions ensure this stability.
